The Dale,

8th Feby 1895


      I beg to acknowledge your letter of 29th January enclosing a copy of a Resolution adopted by the Astronomical & Physical Society of Toronto respecting the death of my late brother-in-law, Mr. Charles Carpmael.

      On behalf of his family I beg to thank the society sincerely for the very warm and feeling way in which they have referred to Mr. Carpmael's memory and to the services, which I know, he gladly rendered.

      We also appreciate the handsome manner in which the copy of the resolution was expressed. I shall leave it appropriately framed and preserved for Mr. Carpmael's children.

      Will you oblige me by communicating this to the Society at its next meeting.

With much respect
I am, my dear Sir,

Yours very truly

John Hoskin.

G. E. Lumsden Esq.


The Astronomical & Physical Society of Toronto.
